We have 4 Windows 2003 IIS servers all serviced by a common http load balancer.     I'd like to establish an IIS settings replication scheme.   I've read through the article explaining the Microsoft Metabase backup/restore/replication scripts at http://www.modhul.com/2007/08/16/replicate-the-iis6-metabase-between-nodes/ 

A couple of questions, please?
1.   The servers in question are separated by firewalls (more than one) and cannot directly attach to one another -- I would think that the direct copy method won't work.   There is a common share.  Is there some way there I can put in backup into that share and distribute it from there?
2.  I've no experience with IIS metabase backup.  Do I also need to establish replication schemes for replicatiing web content and OS level permissions?

Thank you.
